Peanut Butter Banana Chip Bites
If an infomercial pops up on tv…. most likely I will watch it. I don’t know what it is, it’s like I have to. There’s some magical hold in those awkward/super long commercials, all in front of a “live audience”. This is where I first spied a food dehydrator. I don’t ever buy from these infomercials, but they had this guy for sale on Amazon. SO I bought it.
Dehydrating has been wonderful! Apple chips? Pineapple bites? Banana chips? Yeah. I got that. I currently have the Ronco Dehydrator. It gets the job done. That’s for sure. Buuuuut, I can’t help but wonder about those fancy dehydrators. Are they faster? Do the dehydrate all the things better? Hmmmm… I’ve been eyeing this spendy Nesco dehydrator. Shhh, don’t tell the hubs.
BUT, really: I don’t see any need to change dehydrators until Mr. Ronco craps out. So far, with non stop use since December (I’m talking…. working almost everyday since Christmas) it’s still going strong. SO: we are happy. Hopefully me typing this doesn’t jinx something and the trays all crack overnight. Ha! I doubt it. I’d really like to get a fruit roll up tray. What I REALLy love about this: these fruity treats have no added sugar. In the grocery store I’ve noticed a lot of dried fruit has added sugar. Our fruit has been so sweet as it is, I don’t see the need for more sweetness.
The kiddo eats banana chips non stop. It’s like her healthy crack……… What? She loves them. We were out of them for 3 days and she acted like the world was ending. The dried pineapple pieces are pretty sweet and is perfect to replace dessert.
One of her FAVORITE ways to eat the banana chips: with a bit of peanut butter in the middle. I call them Peanut Butter Banana Bites. A special little snack for my kiddo.
Do you have a dehydrator?
